Stockholm offers a full range of educational possibilities in law and is ranked among the top 100 law schools in the world. Founded in 1893, Stockholm University’s Department of Law maintains the tradition of high-quality legal education with a focus on putting theory into practice and taking full advantage of the expertise found in an innovative, dynamic capital city.

We offer five LLM programmes in English. These internationally focused master’s programmes are some of the most highly regarded and highly competitive programmes at the university and have a strong, international reputation.

With a portfolio of over 90 partner universities all over the world, our exchange programme also welcomes about 200 students each year, all studying fulltime in English. Doctoral studies can also be completed in English.

Providing that they have the required level of fluency in Swedish, foreign students interested in obtaining a Swedish law degree (Juristexamen) can apply to join our Swedish Law Programme. If they already hold a law degree from a non-EU country, we also offer a two-year fast-track programme (Kompletteringsutbildningen).


Why Stockholm?

To follow your passion. To be close to international career opportunities. To explore city and countryside. In Stockholm you can really get the best of both worlds. As a student at Stockholm University you get the benefit of living in the Swedish capital.
